What causes this to happen?
Too little light?
Too much light?
Normal, and it happens all the time, or something I am doing wrong?
They looked so good when I bought them, then went this way with brown colored roots coming out of the leaves. Don't looks so good now, but plants grown, and not dying.

lol.. those are new plantlets forming. This means the plant is healthy!
Ok. Glad to hear. Just looks bad.
Can the plant be burried just like a stem plant or does it need to be above surface. why I ask is when I purchased it it was tied to a bamboo ring and laying on the surface the way it grew, but I wold like to space it out more.
Nice Plants! You will have many baby plants soon.:thumbsup:
They are Java Ferns don't bury them but tie them to an object. They will eventually attach themselves to it.
